The enigmatic japanese smile

Mrs. Beckham would not stand a chance.

In Japan, poute is out!

A strange thing though; the japanese smile is not nesseserally a symbol of happiness or acceptance as in western culture. The j-smile can imply everything from sadness, embarrassment, confusion or that they “dont know”.

The j-smile is a powerfull act in the silent culture of japan, where avoiding conflict and confrontations is essential. Practice makes perfect…

They even have developed a camera with smile recognition software, which snaps on the cue of a smile.

That camera  would probably not work with me and my gloomy scandinavian partners in karaokecrime, just not that chippy…ha!
